This show brings together a series of works by Joseph Cornell (1903–1972) that were inspired by his admiration for the Spanish Cubist Juan Gris—especially the latter’s 1914 painting,The Man at the Café. Cornell felt a deep affinity for Gris that he described as “fraternal,” and that bond in on full display in this selection of 30 pieces that includes 18 of Cornell’s signature shadowboxes.
